Printed Collections

The printed collections of the AUEB Library and the Center of Information cover all the academic subjects that the University currently offers and has offered since its foundation in 1920. The collections include about 220,000 volumes and are constantly enriched with new items. To catalogue the printed material, the Library uses the Angloamerican Cataloguing Rules (AACR2). The classification of the printed material is done using the International Dewey Decimal System, according to which knowledge is classified with a numbers system of 000 to 999.

The printed collections are housed on the first and second floors of the main building of the University. Users can access the shelves freely. Older material is retired from the shelves to storage areas on a yearly basis and, at the same time, there is a reorganization of the active collections with a corresponding update to the catalogues.

Closed-stack collections
All the collections that are in the Library's storage areas - the basement of the main building of the University and the storage facility on Trias Street - are closed-stack collections. Users who need to use old material should advise the Library staff accordingly. The material will be transferred from the closed stacks to the Circulation Desk of the Library for the user who has submitted the request. It will be available within three working days at the most.

You can search for printed material in the Library Catalogue (Web-OPAC).
